Packaging solutions provider Sidel has introduced EvoFILL PET, a new filler for water and still beverages, to the packaging market.
Sidel is targeting the rapidly expanding water industry in countries such as China, India and Turkey, where it is the fastest-growing category driving PET [polyethylene terephthalate] growth.
Family pack consumption of water and beverages is on the rise, while single-serve formats are decreasing. Health and price remain key considerations for bottled water.
The new filler can handle high production speeds of 90,000 bottles per hour.
EvoFILL PET’s reduced filler enclosure offers a controlled environment for flowmeter contactless filling, while preserving bottle integrity with gentle neck handling.
Beginning at 24 and ranging up to 144 filling valves, with a range of pitch and filler diameter sizes, EvoFILL PET can handle bottle sizes from 0.1 to 10 litres. Format changeovers come in both manual and automatic modes.

Cleaning has also been made more sustainable as the integrated CIP [cleaning-in-place] system reduces energy by 25% from previous models, while also cutting both water and chemical consumption by 12% for external cleaning, based on a standard three-step process.
The filler can be integrated within Sidel’s Combi and Super Combi complete systems and linked with the company’s Evo-ON digital intelligence platform to monitor all aspects of filling parameters and performance.
In late 2023, Sidel aided Italian mineral water producer Ferrarelle Società Benefit in installing aseptic technology to produce its range of Vitasnella”‘Le Linfe” functional water.
